Question Who does the food shopping in your house.

The Business
Oct 25, 2003
In a world of my own.

I am at a crossroads. Mrs DtS and I have until recently done the food shopping as a joint effort. We rarely go and do a massive shop rather we go once a week and get stuff for the week.

However it has come to my attention that if Mrs DtS goes on her own that we come back with so much less that if I go on my own.

As a case study I went to the shops last week after football. I spent £30 notes and came back with six bangs full - Pastas, Rices.Spuds, Onions, Mushrooms and Peppers, Some meat and prawns and enough milk,bread and cheese to last a week. Add to this what you already have in the fridge and we basically have a weeks worth of meals.

In comparrison as I studying for exams at the moment Mrs DtS kindly decided to go to our good friend JS Sainsburys yesterday and get some food in. As she is on materanity leave my money is hers so I am taking more of an interest in what is being spent.

Mrs DtS managed to spend £40 on the following items, x4 differnet types od cheeses, rice milk, aubergines, courgettes, x2 lots of trout steaks, coffee, a cooked roast chicken for lunch and 3 different types of bread.

Now I am not being funny but why do we need 4 different cheeses. We are only using it as toping of a Lasange later this week.

I am now at the stage where I am thinking of taking over this role in full. I actually love a food shop and I feel I buy such better things that she does. Mrs DtS arguement is that I only buy essentials and not the nice things in life.

Lads - What do the lot of you do? Who holds ther purse strings when it comes to food shopping.
